St Vincent and Grenadines Cricket Association (SVGCA) has announced it’s one of a kind T10 league, named the Vincy Premier League (VPL). The six-team tournament is set to get underway on May 22 to until May 30, 2020 and the games will take place at the Arnos Valley Sporting Complex. The teams are named after the tourist attraction sites in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
72 players were drafted in in the format similar to the Indian Premier League (IPL) and the Caribbean Premier League (CPL). At the present point in time, the cricket world has come to a standstill due to the massive global coronavirus pandemic. However, Dr. Kishore Shallow, the president of the SVGCA) sounded pretty optimistic about the tournament taking place.
30 matches to be played in the Vincy Premier League
“It is an exciting time for cricket in SVG, I can feel the buzz of sports enthusiasts who are thirsty for some cricket and sports,” Dr Shallow was quoted as saying in CricketNews.com. The logos of the six franchises were designed by E-FishAnt Solutions.
“We came up with this T10 franchise format because of the absence of sports content at this point, and thought that this brand of cricket would be enticing to cricket fans across the globe in a short duration. The competition will be over a 10-day period, and all 30 matches will be streamed live,” he added.
The tournament will consist of a number of international cricketers, including Kesrick Williams, Obed McCoy and Sunil Ambris. Keron Cottoy, who was a part of the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the last CPL, is also a part of the league. Moreover, he is one of the marquee players.
Williams, who is also the marquee player for the Botanical Gardens Rangers, was excited by how things have panned out thus far. “It was great being part of the draft. Though it got tense at times, because we all wanted to secure the best players and team composition, it was really an enjoyable experience,” Williams mentioned.
Apart from Williams, McCoy, Ambris and Cottoy, the other marquee players are Lindon James and Desron Maloney.
